Vaiz (3617) - Den Haag, - FEB 5, 2013
Straight from the bottle. Slightly above average pale lager, a bit more malty but also a bit grainy and corny. Sweetish, decent body but still nothing special.

DSG (6534) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Levi’s place. Thanks Levi. Pale golden with a white head. Aroma of grains, hay, acetaldehyde and some corn. Grainy flavor, slightly corny, with light sweetness, a papery note and a drier finish with a bitterish hint. Light-bodied.
